One of the topics I've heard come up is how to continue to support and sustain long term, overall wellness for not only children, but the caregivers supporting families...are there recommendations to sustain mental and physical wellness?
Jessica Denton
01:04:56
That statement was so valuable "It's our job to be ready for your child. Take them where they are." THANK YOU!
Sharan Condon

Well said
cassandra corcoran
01:07:19
What are the expectations of providers in the classroom? Masks? social distancing? and if there are COVID requeirments how to maintain our humanity? provide love and compassion. What will free play look like? Will children be asked not to share personal space with others?
dnbailey
01:07:31
Thanks for saying this and recognizing white privilege , David!
Ali Hodsden
01:08:05
Would someone speak with regards to wearing masks and co-regulating, teaching emotions to young children in schools, please?
Meg Baker

Can you please speak to ways to reduce the social-emotional impacts of mask-wearing?
Theresa forbes
01:09:43
it takes a village to raise a child
dcoburn
01:10:15
Conscious Discipline offers great social stories about mask wearing, corona virus info at a basic level. They have free resources right now.
dnbailey
01:11:28
Normalizing for babies??? Maybe 3 year olds….
acosey
01:11:41
We are doing that this week in my district!
acosey
01:12:13
There are social stories on mask wearing on teachers pay teachers for free
Ali Hodsden
01:12:22
I think where I am coming from is I’ve had families say that their children are losing ground with speech development, emotional development. Our very young children look at our face and mouths to learn how to communicate.
Sarah Perrotte
01:12:22
Donna Bailey, totally agree. I think it's going to be scary
cassandra corcoran
01:12:35
I agree Donna
Jen Turco-Ricker
01:12:41
I agree
Valerie Judge
01:12:47
yes. there are social stories for masks and you can create one yourself:)
Becca Webb
01:12:48
I've been working on asking the deeper questions & alternative to asking "How are you?"- https://www.theatlantic.com/family/archive/2020/04/should-i-still-say-how-are-you-during-a-pandemic/610639/ I've found it an alternative strategy for the imbalance of trauma Dave spoke abou
dnbailey
01:13:05
We have masks made with clear piece over mouth - taken from hard of hearing sites….
amanda Cousineau
01:13:11
You can make mask wearing fun. Make it a game. Peek a boo or am I smiling, frowning, sad, etc.
dnbailey
01:13:47
FOR INFANTS different than older kids
cassandra corcoran
01:13:50
And I would disagree Some children need a softer touch than gross body language expression
dnbailey
01:14:12
Agreed, Cassandra
Ali Hodsden
01:14:53
Dnbailey, can you share where you ordered clear mouth area masks from?

As a provider it's hard to homeschool the children in my care and watch the little ones, so it is a high stress situation. I have been advised by cdd that it's not my job to homeschool, it's the parents. But when this first started an essential parent was working so they certainly could not be there for the kids online meetings. So I ended up doing it. Couldn't say no for a number of reasons. I am dreading Fall and homeschooling. Do I say no to homeschooling in the fall? If I do that it doesn't feel like I am supporting the family. Seems like there is no answer that is best for everyone.
